Your Lucky Day, the horror thriller featuring one of the final performances of Euphoria breakout Angus Cloud, has secured a SAG-AFTRA Interim Agreement for publicity ahead of its Fantastic Fest premiere, Deadline has learned. This highly anticipated film has already started generating buzz among fans and critics alike.
Dying of an undisclosed cause on July 31st, at his family home in Oakland, CA, aged 25, Cloud’s co-stars in Your Lucky Day included Jessica Garza, Elliot Knight, Jason O’Mara, Spencer Garrett, Mousa Hussein Kraish, Jason Wiles and Sebastian Sozzi. This talented ensemble brings a unique dynamic to the film, making it a standout addition to the horror thriller genre.
The film from writer-director Daniel Brown is billed as a morality tale set on Christmas Eve in a small convenience store near the bottom of the socioeconomic food chain where a hostage situation breaks out over a $156 million lottery ticket. When things inevitably spiral, the film becomes a hardboiled look at how the poisonous heart of the American dream is actually a nightmare. This intriguing premise sets the stage for a thrilling and thought-provoking cinematic experience.
In addition to Your Lucky Day, Cloud leaves behind Radio Silence’s forthcoming monster movie for Universal and the horror thriller Freaky Tales with Ben Mendelsohn, Pedro Pascal and Jay Ellis, which Ryan Fleck and Anna Boden wrote, directed and produced for eOne and Macro. His talent and potential were cut short, leaving a void in the entertainment industry. His family expressed their grief and provided insight into Cloud’s struggles with mental health. They hope that his passing can serve as a reminder for others to seek help and not suffer in silence.
Among the many others remembering the actor was Euphoria’s lead Zendaya, who in taking to Instagram, wrote, “Words are not enough to describe the infinite beauty that is Angus (Conor). I’m so grateful I got the chance to know him in this life, to call him a brother, to see his warm kind eyes and bright smile, or hear his infectious cackle of a laugh (I’m smiling now just thinking of it).” The outpouring of love and admiration for Cloud showcases the impact he had on those who knew him, both personally and professionally.
Your Lucky Day promises to be a chilling and thought-provoking film that will keep audiences on the edge of their seats. With an exceptional cast and a captivating plot, this horror thriller is poised to make a mark in the industry. As fans eagerly anticipate the film’s release, the memory of Angus Cloud will live on, reminding us of his talent, charisma, and the importance of mental health awareness.
